Beautiful Gate Lesotho exists to reach out to orphaned, abandoned, and neglected children ages newborn to 5 years old, and give them the love they need and deserve.
In a country afflicted by overwhelming poverty (2 in 5 people live on less than $1 a day) and extreme disease (over 1 in 4 people are HIV positive), children are often treated with no more respect or worth than a discarded candy wrapper. Children are sometimes found in a trash dumpster, a toilet pit, or alone in a forest. We seek to give them the opportunity to be more than just a statistic. We strive to give them the opportunity to just be kids.
Beautiful Gate Lesotho seeks to glorify God by giving these children their childhood while they wait for their forever families. The ultimate goal is to unite these children with forever families that will love them as their own. Until that is accomplished, Beautiful Gate Lesotho is their family. The staff and volunteers love these children as their own. The children at Beautiful Gate Lesotho have lives that reflect those of any other child. They are given opportunities to go to school, play with their friends, and help out around their houses. They have the same physical and emotional needs that all children do. It does not matter whether they are orphaned or abandoned, they are still children, and their first and foremost identity is as a precious child made in the image of a loving, Heavenly Father.
